According to the Support Group for Returnees and Refugees (GARR), "in terms of migration, there is no doubt that the month of July was marked by large waves of repatriations at the various border points. Pregnant women, the elderly, minors, and professionals of all categories were among the Haitians expelled.
"Despite repeated calls from many institutions working in protection, the Dominican Republic pays no attention to compliance with the protocol agreement on repatriation and so many other tools that frame these activities globally. It should be remembered that vulnerable people such as pregnant women, children and the elderly deserve special treatment, it is intolerable that Dominican migration can continue to act as it sees fit."
